Does anyone know the true difference between Librax and Bentyl? I know Librax is a tranquilizer for the gut, but what exactly is Bentyl designed to do?

i have been taking bentyl for 5 years. its controls the "spasms" in your intenstants. helps me. you take it 30 minutes before you eat. i panick if i don't have any of it. i have to take with every meal. i don't know what the other one does. hope this helped.

Bentyl is dicyclomin hydrocholoride, an anit-spasmodic specific to the bowel. You can read all about it here: http://ww1.onhealth.com/ch1/resource/pharmacy/drug/item,22641.asp

Librax, used mainly tr treat anxiety, is a combination of clidinium bromide, an anti-spasmodic, and chlordiazepoxide hydrocholoride, the same "ingredient" as in Librium. Librium is used for the treatment of anxiety disorders. Read more about it here: http://www.mentalhealth.com/drugrs/t33-l01.html
